Sergey Brin's search for Parkinson's cure (Wired UK)

Very interesting discussion of a new research method that is evolving due to the power of the Internet. It's kind of like crowdsourcing. They begin with a very huge data set or sample set, and then try to weed out the noise and look for correlations. I think this will revolutionize scientific research. This is the guy (cofounder of Google) who started 23andMe after he found out that he has the gene for Parkinson's, LRRK2.
